Democrat John Bel Edwards' big win in Louisiana is a big deal for the Democratic Party, giving them headwinds toward the 2016 election, despite the gloom and doom you hear from liberals. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders need to be taking notes.
Bill Goodman showed that he is not only a hall of fame journalist; he is a hall of fame author and every true Kentuckian should own a copy of his book.
If the events in Richmond, Kentucky, and Paris, France, have served any purpose for those who have witnessed them, it is to compel all of us to remember the words of Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
We have a question on the board that says, "What are you going to do today to make a difference for your tomorrow?" We reflect on that every day. It doesn't have to be about learning, either; they could've made a new friend or helped someone out. But it is about them showing up.
At age 56, I get to be a rock star. In an athletic setting. Surrounded by some of the fittest and most motivated people I have ever met. All I have to do is keep showing up and let them watch me go at CrossFit with complete abandon. I have a new set of friends and admirers.
Recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau's Current Population Survey show the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is working and helping get people health coverage. This is a welcome stark contrast to new census data showing children remain our poorest age group and the younger they are the poorer they are.
The news that Pope Francis met with Kim Davis raises a series of questions that must be answered urgently. Let's begin with trying to understand what happened. And so we should ask: Did Pope Francis know who Kim Davis is? Was he aware of the consequences that were sure to follow his meeting with her?
Pope Francis speaks out faithfully and forcefully against poverty and has been called "the pope of the poor." But on his first visit to the United States there was demoralizing news about poverty, especially child poverty, in our nation -- the world's largest economy.
In 2007, Congress declared September to be America's National Bourbon Heritage Month--so it's time to get sipping.
As the mother of a young man with high-functioning autism, my mission each school year has been to make sure my son avoids being restrained. With my son being in the general education population since first grade, this has been a special challenge.
Kim Davis should not be mentioned in the same article as Martin Luther King Jr, yet SE Cupp and Loconte did just that, "Martin Luther King Jr.'s entire campaign of civil disobedience was based on the belief that citizens owed allegiance to the "natural law" -- a moral law higher than that of any civil authority.
It's understandable why the national media is having such an easy time misrepresenting the residents of this small town. Since there seems to be much confusion, I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight:
Kim Davis has every right to believe as she does. That's America; people of all colors, creeds and sexual orientations being able to express their different beliefs through the freedom of speech. But what she does not have the right to do is impede on the rights of any other American based on her personal convictions.
I practice my religion to the fullest within the protections of the freedoms of our country. But, where I differ with those who would deprive gay Americans of their personal and religious freedom - including the right of marriage - is that my belief or practice does not impinge on the rights of others.
Governor John Kasich (R - OH) worries that the Kentucky spectacle of Christian extremism will turn people away from religion. He is right to worry. I am disgusted by the un-American, hypocritical, mean-spirited rallies and shows of support for Kim Davis.
Kentucky rightly lays claim as the heart of bourbon country. More bourbon distilleries are located here than anywhere else in the country. But which bottles to buy? And why?
